Choose From Two Degrees
Thomas More College offers two degrees in Forensic Science - a B.S. in Forensic Biology (which involves identifying bodily fluids, DNA, genetics and botanical materials) and a B.S. in Forensic Chemistry (identifying drug substances, as well as explosive and unknown residues). Both degrees require the same core science courses in biology, chemistry, physics and forensic science. Advanced course work does not occur until your junior and senior years, so you don't need to decide which degree to pursue until the end of your sophomore year.
Exciting Career Opportunities
Both of Thomas More's Forensic Science programs are designed to meet degree requirements as defined by the National Institute of Justice and the American Academy of Forensic Science, so you know you'll be fully prepared for the workplace. Forensic scientists usually work for government (city, state or federal) crime laboratories or private laboratories. With the extensive training you receive at Thomas More, you may also choose to pursue medical school, an advanced degree in chemistry or biology, or a career in private industry.
